Dell ‘Annie’ 2012 Commercial – What’s the Song?
Every kid has a dream, and in this new Dell commercial, little Annie dreamed that she could fly. With Dell’s laptop at her fingertips, the young girl proved that anything is possible — as long as you have the right tools. All it took was “a mighty machine, brilliant ingenuity and plain old stubbornness” and soon, Annie was soaring through the sky, high above the heads of disbelievers — alongside a song called ‘Be Brave’ by the Strange Boys.
The Strange Boys are a Texas-based rock band that was formed in 2001 by then-eighth graders Ryan Sambol and Matt Hammer. The group originated as a duo but acquired a third member (Ryan’s brother, Philip) two years later. Matt has since left the band, but the brothers still remain.
‘Be Brave’ is the title track from their second full-length album, released in March 2010 via In the Red Records. Their third album, ‘Live Music,’ came out last fall.
The Strange Boys toured through a handful of U.S. cities back in May to promote their new music. In the past, they have appeared alongside acts including Deerhunter, Mika Miko, Spoon and the Strokes’ Julian Casablancas.
